-noun, plural -ja, -jas. (often initial capital letter) a member of a
feudal Japanese society of mercenary agents, highly trained in martial
arts and stealth (ninjutsu), who were hired for covert purposes
ranging from espionage to sabotage and assassination.

In Japanese, ninja is the plural form of ninja.  Of course, Japanese
doesn't have plurals for most nouns.
